Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain
Transformation operations on existing homes have become, in recent years, one of the main fields of action for architecture studios, especially for those who are taking their first steps in a professional landscape as complex as the current one.
This small apartment is located in the downtown area of the city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Its elevated corner position next to an ensemble of heritage buildings gives it views over the city and nearby mountains.
The house, in its previous state, responded to a typology of little interest; very compartmentalized, with small rooms organized through a dark and narrow corridor.
Starting from a program defined by the property, who required two bedrooms, we opted for a simple strategy: compact the service areas and the rooms to free up space in the common areas.
The distribution of the house is modified by relocating the kitchen, and making it part of the new open living-dining room, creating a continuous and bright corner that offers views of the surrounding landscape is achieved.
A very limited intervention in dimensions and budget, that from simplicity tries to create a pleasant home in which to live.
